Node selected

Node selection is described in the Introduction. Selected nodes can be moved by dragging in the touch area, you can enable a large drag area in the preferences. You can edit tags for selected nodes.


Note: some of these actions will only be visible if they can actually be executed on the selected node. For example you can only merge a node with a way or node if the selected node is in their tolerance zone.

Undo Undo

Tapping the icon once will undo the last operation. A long press will display a list of the operations since the last save, if you have undone anything a corresponding "redo" action will be displayed. If the undo results in the current selected object being removed you will be returned to the main screen. Some operations consist of multiple simpler actions that will be listed as individual items.

Properties Properties

Starts the property editor on the current selection.

Address Add address tags

Adds address tags with prediction. If the node is part of a building way it will further add "entrance=yes" if not present.

Append Append

Add to the way this node is part of. The "Append" action is only available if the node in question is an end node of a way.

Unjoin Unjoin

If a way node is selected that is a member of multiple ways this will create additional nodes at the location and use them instead of the original node in the ways.

Merge Merge

Merge the selected node with a way (as a new way node) or with an existing node. To make this tool appear in the toolbar, select a node and move it next to a way. If there are multiple possible target nodes or ways a disambiguation context menu will be shown.

Extract Extract node

Extract the selected node from all ways that it is a member of and replace it with a newly created one. The original node retains all tags and relation memberships and remains selected. After extracting, drag the node to its new position.

TurnRestriction Add turn restriction

Start creating a turn restriction with this node as "via" member. This action is only available if the node in question is a potential via member, that is it is a member of at least two ways that have a "highway" tag. Ways will be split automatically during the process.

Copy Copy

Copy the node to the internal copy and paste buffer.

Cut Cut

Move the node to the internal copy and paste buffer removing it from the data.

Paste tags

Set tags from the tag clipboard and start the property editor.
